Leftist Jews and Anti-Semitism
Tuesday, April 25th, 2017 | Author:

Leftist Jews always prioritize progressive causes ahead of Judaism

The most outrageous tissue of lies I have seen in my forty-five years as a journalist appeared yesterday on the website of The Forward, a once-great Jewish publication long since absorbed into the echo chamber of liberal propaganda.

“How does the Forward expect to get away this with, when the whole television interview is on the public record,” one might ask. The answer is: They don’t. Neither did Goebbels.

They Can’t Get Enough of the Manchurian Man
Monday, April 24th, 2017 | Author:

It’s now 2017 and the editorial writers are still trying to figure out Obama… Years ago it was very obvious that Obama is the Manchurian Marxist Moslem:

Ex-President Barack Obama is the mystery man of American politics. Given the absence of a viable paper trail, nobody can say for sure who he is. He manifests for us as a figure of multiple identities: a Christian, a Muslim, a secularist, a socialist, a humanist, an intellectual, a man of the people. His lack of definable substance, his inner absence, has been an important political advantage. As Obama himself confessed (or boasted) in The Audacity of Hope, this layering of anonymities enabled him to “serve as a blank screen on which people of vastly different political stripes project their own views.”

Do Google and Yahoo Provide ‘News’?
Saturday, April 22nd, 2017 | Author:

It’s amazing the drivel that covers the pages of the so called meaningful ‘news’ at the sites for Google News and Yahoo News.  Google is all about the mainstream media.  As you can see from the first screenshot below, they feature the usual suspects with articles from the Washington Post, New York Times, Huffington Post, etc.

Meanwhile, the Yahoo news site is fairly useless.  It reminds me of the magazines lining the checkout aisle at you local grocery store.  A little of National Star and People magazine.  As you can see in the second screenshot, they feature inane articles about the Kardashians and the cast from an old movie.  To make it even worse, Yahoo intersperses stealth ads that intentionally appear to be news articles.

Thank goodness for Feedly and the multitude of other information sites on the web.

Earth Day Predictions 1970 
Thursday, April 20th, 2017 | Author:

It is the 47th anniversary of “Earth Day” when all the Gaea-lovers got together to prognosticate the end of the world… How accurate were the predictions made around the time of the first Earth Day in 1970?

The prophets of doom were not simply wrong, but spectacularly wrong…

Paul Ehrlich confidently declared in the April 1970 issue of Mademoiselle. “The death rate will increase until at least 100-200 million people per year will be starving to death during the next ten years”…

Harrison Brown, a scientist at the National Academy of Sciences, published a chart in Scientific American that looked at metal reserves and estimated the humanity would totally run out of copper shortly after 2000. Lead, zinc, tin, gold, and silver would be gone before 1990.

A Mole Safari
Thursday, April 20th, 2017 | Author:

Update

I don’t know what it is with moles and me, but I seem to encounter them during uncharacteristic times.  They theoretically stay underground during daylight hours, but while walking through my ‘back 40’, I discovered one with its tuchus hanging out while it was trying to burrow underground.   I used my size 11s to continue my long-delayed mole safari… My neighbor was very appreciative.

 

May 9, 2006

For those of you not familiar with moles, these are little mammals that live underground and burrow holes under your lawn.  The mole was originally made famous in the movie Caddyshack, where Bill Murray played the nutty golf groundskeeper challenged by the moles that were digging up the putting greens…

Since I had moles under my lawn — and I tried every humane method to eradicate these creatures — I decided that I needed to go on a mole safari.   I set various spring-loaded traps above their burrows — and what do you know, I skewered a couple of the grey, furry, overgrown mice.

More Young Americans Live With Parents Than With Spouse
Wednesday, April 19th, 2017 | Author:

Interesting change in culture:

According to a new study by the U.S. Census Bureau.“There are now more young people living with their parents than in any other arrangement.”

In 1975, 31.9 million Americans in the 18-to-34 age bracket were married and lived with their spouse… In 2016, only 19.9 million were married and lived with a spouse—while 22.9 million lived in their parents’ home.

White Men Can’t Run?
Friday, April 07th, 2017 | Author:

From now on, ESPN tells us that inane statements about stereotypes are only considered ‘outspoken’:

LaVar Ball, the outspoken father of former UCLA guard Lonzo Ball, gave two reasons Thursday for why the Bruins were eliminated in the NCAA tournament: Lonzo was saddled by a hamstring injury, and some of his teammates, whom LaVar referred to as “three white guys,” couldn’t pick up the slack.

Obamagate vs Watergate
Thursday, April 06th, 2017 | Author:

Update

Is this a surprise to anyone?

The Rice story strengthens the assessment that for eight years, Obama and his associates weaponized the federal government to wage a political war against their domestic political opponents in a manner that is simply unprecedented.

 

April 2, 2017

The emerging story about the Obama administration, and its use of the federal bureaucracy to spy on Republicans, is going to make Watergate seem like child’s play.  Naturally, there is nothing but obfuscation and diversion being played by the mainstream media and the Democrats:

Once you wave away all the smoke created by our dishonest media, the story of this past week was pretty simple. The Trump-Russia-Conspiracy narrative is falling apart. The Obama-Spied-on-his-Political-Opposition narrative is coming together

But in a stunning piece of video, a former Obama official who went on to advise the Hillary Clinton campaign essentially confirmed that she was urging the previous administration to abuse intelligence on the Trump people. Evelyn Farkas, former deputy assistant secretary of defense, told Mika Brzezinski earlier this month: “I was urging my former colleagues and, frankly speaking, the people on the Hill, it was more actually aimed at telling the Hill people, get as much information as you can, get as much intelligence as you can, before President Obama leaves the administration. Because I had a fear that somehow that information would disappear with the senior [Obama] people who left, so it would be hidden away in the bureaucracy. That the Trump folks – if they found out how we knew what we knew about… the Trump staff dealing with Russians – that they would try to compromise those sources and methods, meaning we no longer have access to that intelligence.”

The Clintons and Charity
Tuesday, April 04th, 2017 | Author:

These are figures from an official copy of the Bill, Hillary, and Chelsea Clinton Foundation for the tax year 2014.  Anyone may obtain a copy of the tax return from the National Center for Charitable Statistics website.

Total revenue (line 12) ………………..$177,804, 612.00
Total grants to charity (line 13) ………..$5,160,385.00
Total expenses ………………………………$91,281,145.00

Expenses include:
Salaries (line 15)………………$34,838,106.00
Fund raising fees (line 16a)……$850,803.00
Other expenses (line 17)…….$50,431,851.00

They list 486 employees (line 5).  Evidently, it took 486 people who were paid $34.8 million along with $91.3 million in fees and expenses, to give away $5.1 million.   To make it even more disconcerting, the Foundation granted less than 3% of total revenue to charities!  Most people would interpret a foundation with these numbers as a scam.

Here’s the link to the actual tax return at the National Center for Charitable Statistics.

Who’s Dispensing ‘Fake News’?
Friday, March 31st, 2017 | Author:

Update

Today we call it fake news.  It was all fake news during the Obama Administration but there was a difference.  The media had transformed into something different, worse, and more insidious.  They became active Obama-collaborators.  They stopped conducting themselves as the fourth estate.  The media didn’t report on the most obvious corrupt administration in U.S. history, or the failures of Obama and his administration.  Instead, numerous reports indicated Obama had one the most scandal free administration ever.  The media and Obama were hand-in-glove, committed and organized to undermine the U.S. Constitution, destroy the rule of law, and attack common sense and American culture.

 

December 18, 2016

As a user of Feedly as my daily news reader, I am able to efficiently aggregate multiple news sources of my choosing.  Hence, I subscribe to over 200 sources (ranging from mainstream media to obscure special-interest blogs) from around the world.  This provides me with a wide range of viewpoints on newsworthy topics.  Over time, I’ve come to observe many common trends or ‘flavors’ of how these sources interpret events.

I must say that I see tons of irony in hearing the mainstream media calling out “fake news”.  These ubiquitous organizations (ABC, NBC, CBS, CNN, MSNBC, Washington Post, Los Angeles Times, and New York Times) have been behaving as an American version of Pravda for more than 20 years.   As Bill Whittle recently observed:

Maybe all this fuss is to turn us away from the realization that EVERYTHING we hear from the main stream media, from the earth is dying hysteria to mom-and-pop bakeries in Oregon is ALL fake news, reported by, presented by, edited by and spun by the mainstream media, which has devolved into the publicity department for the Democratic Party in General and the progressive movement in particular.

I think it’s fairly safe to observe that the ‘democratization’ of information via the Internet is finally having the appropriate impact on the news monopolies.  The recent election results have shown these organizations that their spin on the news no longer has the influence that it once had.
